Seek Bromance- Rant Plz help To my followers, would really appreciate some sort of response on this. I'm just not feeling well at all right now, and need help.

Me-eat up Fruits

His second meeting and the first now fleeting. Beers in hand while language discussed. A bust-- alcohol exhaled-- inhaling spirit. Lyrics for lovers prevents the salsa downwards.

Gorgeously brave patatas in the ramblas … Continue reading Me-eat up Fruits

A Day Of Lost Ashes Point-less, learning his own language. One of two unknown. Arabic forgotten, Serbian-- forced crust. Asian tunnels-- digging a hole to emerge from his money splurged.  Purge-- wretch the liquid and watch the class.

The Storm

"Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why?
